Picky, picky! I wonder if a picture of a mountain can feel anything. Maybe 'mi pilin ike tan sitelen pi nena wawa.' I know we say the other in English but tp isn't English.

I'm guessing the attempt was "The volcano seems unpleasant to me"

ma nena pi seli loje li kama e pilin ike tawa mi. <-- Not very ambiguous.

But li pilin is supposed to work somewhat like "to feel", wouldn't this be potentially valid?

meji: nena li piline seme?
meli: nena mi li pilin sama pan lili* taso sina ken pilin ala e nena mi.
* muffins

I suppose a picture of a volcano would feel like photographic paper.

Since "pali" is mainly for 'make, work, build, construct, I would rather use
nena seli li kama open li pana e kiwen lili mute...

Picky, picky, still. I don't think the volcano per se emitted hot water but it did cause the water to flow downward by melting the surrounding (indeed overlaid) glacier, So, 'anpa' is not obviously wrong.

Oh, I took "telo kiwen" for lava, with lete for "cool lava".

And I didn't even think of that (I suppose I would have said 'kiwen telo' but I'm not sure). Of course, the last pictures I saw, the critter was heaving 10+ pound blocks of still frozen ice into a swamp half a dozen miles away.
